SAT 8/8: $10 Tix for Fenway Doubleheader

Futures At Fenway
More to come... Including a midnight bike ride through Boston tomorrow...

SAT 8/8

"Futures at Fenway"
at Fenway Park, 4 Yawkey Way, Boston
$5, $10

* Portland Sea Dogs vs. Bowie Baysox
* Pawtucket Red Sox vs. Norfolk Tides

Yes, Virginia. You can see a game at Fenway Park on the cheap... Minor league baseball is fun. You go and just enjoy the game. When I go, there's no anxiety about who wins... It's not as crowded... The tickets and concessions are cheaper...

Over the last four seasons, this is one day when average people can afford to watch a game at Fenway. At least the tickets are still cheaper, but I don't know about the -- supposedly discounted – concessions. I wouldn't even be upset if the Paw Sox or Sea Dogs (who are both playing affilliate teams for the Orioles).

They're bringing some 'minor league' entertainment between innings, so expect stuff like t-shirt slingshots, kids racing mascots, frisbee-catching dogs, etc.

One of great parts about rooting for the Sox is that they really do bring up players through their farm system. Some recent players to wear these uniforms in the last few years include Clay Buchholz, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jon Lester, Dustin Pedroia, Jed Lowrie, and Justin Masterson. (Missing you, Justin.) You can even get a future Ebay item at the autograph sessions...

As of Thursday, there were still tickets in the bleachers ($10) and upper bleachers ($5); it's still cheap after the online service fee.

It might be a long day, but you've got extra money for beer and peanuts -- and who needs food anyway...

Note: You can't leave the park between games.
